How to calculate the life cycle cost of a vacuum pump

You chose your ideal vacuum pump, thanks to application-based parameters, and now you find yourself calculating the life cycle of the product.

But specifically what does the life cycle cost of a pump include?

First of all, the purchase cost, which, however, generally represents a minimal part of the total life cycle cost.

Logic and experience say that a low initial cost does not necessarily mean a low life cycle cost.

If you buy a product with low energy efficiency, in fact, over the years you will certainly have an energy cost that exceeds the cost of purchasing an energy efficient pump.

We must also consider the costs of maintenance: the work of the technicians, spare parts, revisions and all that is needed for the machine to work optimally.

Vuototecnica RVP pumps, for example, are characterized by much lower spare parts costs than German vacuum pumps manufacturers, and end users find them cheaper and simpler in terms of maintenance.

Finally, as already mentioned, there are energy costs: the most important parameter, the one that can really lead to savings on the total cost of the life cycle.

Also in this case Vuototecnica thinks about its customers, thanks to cutting-edge high energy saving products.

Vuototecnica helps its customers to better consider life cycle costs.

Robotic restaurants and pizza-cook vending machines: the new challenges of the food industry

In recent years, the food and catering industries integrated ever more technological solutions into their daily activities. You certainly...

In recent years, the food and catering industries integrated ever more technological solutions into their daily activities.

You certainly read about the use of drones in deliveries and you have already seen or even used applications for booking and check-out.

In some cases, however, we are far beyond the most bizarre ideas of science fiction. There is a restaurant in Shanghai completely entrusted to the management of robots: a combination of conveyor belts, robotic arms and automatic trolleys. There are no human waiters, and a software system guides the robots using QR codes sent by the customer.

There is also a vending machine that cooks instant pizza kneading it with fresh ingredients and cooking it, day and night. There are even vending machines that cook cakes, simply by inserting coins.

For the handling of food products it is therefore necessary to use gripping hands for the speed of new robots and the needs of the market. Resistant and flexible vacuum cups, suitable for many applications.

Bernoulli vacuum cups are ideal for handling and gripping porous and irregular products in the food industry: biscuits, crackers, pizza or piadine, semi-finished products and much more.

Bernoulli vacuum cups allow picking and lifting, without any contact and at an incredible speed. They are made of anodised aluminum, with a central stainless steel contrast disk and they are generally useful when dealing with very delicate or fragile materials.

Octopus handling all packaging formats

As you already know, regular readers of our blog, Octopus customization pushed to the maximum point thanks to the realization of gripping hands using a 3D printer.
We already saw a similar application in the post dedicated to CO-BOT by Universal Robot. (If you missed it you can find it here.)
In the video below, you can see in action another robot with multi-sided gripping hand and different suction plans depending on the objects to be taken and moved.

Please, notice the precision and solidity of different gripping: from food packaging, to cardboards, passing through porous sheets, up to the aluminum cans and to liquid-filled blisters. All packaging formats can be moved thanks to Vuototecnica Octopus.
The gripping surfaces can be in foam rubber, can mount rows of suction cups, Bernoulli systems, without contact, or be customized in 3D.
Thanks to 3D printing, in particular, customers’ needs are treated case-by-case, with custom-designed gripping heads to accommodate the shape of the object, winding and holding it. The gripping hands are made of ABS and so they can be resistant and light at the same time.
In this specific case, the source of vacuum generation is external to the gripping hand, but it is possible, according to the space requirements, to integrate pneumatic ejectors directly inside.
Please, contact Vuototecnica designers to request your personalization on www.vuototecnica.net

MECSPE 2019: Vuototecnica waits for you!

From March 28 to 30, 2019 MECSPE returns in Parma, after closing the 2018 edition with the registration of 53,442 professional operators (+ 17% compared to the 2017 edition), thus confirming its central position among the fairs dedicated to the manufacturing sector.

From March 28 to 30, 2019 MECSPE returns in Parma, after closing the 2018 edition with the registration of 53,442 professional operators (+ 17% compared to the 2017 edition), thus confirming its central position among the fairs dedicated to the manufacturing sector.

This fair is the meeting point between production technologies and industrial chains, thanks to the synergy among the trade shows that take place at the same time and the innovative exhibiting system with Excellence Squares, Demonstrative Units and Working Isles.

Vuototecnica, as usual, will not miss the appointment to present you live the latest applications of its solutions to create and manage the vacuum.

If you want to know the new products and talk with the designers, you can find Vuototecnica at Hall 5, stand H71.

Moving big plates and sheets without waste

movimentare

When, in the industrial field, there is the need to move large sheets or long wooden panels, in general we use several suction cups, which can also be outside the sheets in the case of products of different shapes and surfaces.

Vuototecnica has therefore designed a device that is able to select the suction cups actually involved in the grip, a particular probe valve.

Considering the point of origin and the length of the sheet/plate to be taken, the suction cups are activated only if they are entirety inside the sheet or the panel with an intelligent use of vacuum.

The special probe valve (code 190230), on the outside diameter of the suction cup lip, activates vacuum only when it is completely on the plate.

In this way it is possible, among other things, to avoid the use of vacuum solenoid valves, able to select or deselect the suction cups – certainly effective but more complex and expensive.

Vuototecnica valves are made of anodized aluminum and last over time.

Logo and identification code on each Vuototecnica suction cup: beware of imitations!

Logo

The quality of a product depends on the guarantees that the brand is able to give over time to customers, on the effectiveness of the solutions.

For this reason Vuototecnica is keen to mark each product, including suction cups, with the logo and the identification code. Vuototecnica makes a promise to the customer through this identification.

It is a mark of recognizability that allows customers to immediately identify potential false or imitation, which are not Vuototecnica manufacturing.

If you were standing in front of a fake, the quality would not be the same. It would be like purchasing a fake Rolex: it might work but, before our eyes, day after day, we would see the difference in features and functionality, and above all the lifetime is not guaranteed.

Always check the logo and identification code are carried on each product!

And if you have any doubts please contact us.

Investing in technologies for final customer satisfaction

Tecnologie

To improve efficiency and increase revenues, Italian manufacturing companies invest in technologies, but what is most important, now evident, is the ability to extend technological investments to the entire product life cycle – from concept to after-sales services – to finally enrich the end customer’s experience.

An Accenture survey of 90 Italian companies (40 large and 50 small and medium-sized companies) in 22 sectors shows this very well.

The strategic priorities of investments in digital technologies are to develop innovative products and services (64%), to adopt technologies profitably (58%), to enter new markets (58%), to increase customer involvement (53%).

Italian manufacturing companies are indeed well positioned in the world market thanks to the high quality of the products and this makes them 4.0 companies.

For these reasons too, Vuototecnica knows that investing in technology is the first step to make its customers happy and to always grow.

Vuototecnica contributes to energy savings

Vuototecnica

At the basis of an energetically efficient production process and highest performances there is an optimized manipulation solution.

Vuototecnica knows it well, so any application that creates for its customers always considers the efficiency.

And efficiency means energy savings, with no waste.

The engineering of Vuototecnica  products considers above all the quality of materials that allows them a longer lifetime, therefore, for many applications there is no need to change ejectors and vacuum cups frequently. All pieces are resistant over time and always effective.

This is the case for example of Vuototecnica holders with shut-off valves – we have already discussed their benefits here on the blog –  and of vacuum regulators, able to maintain the degree of vacuum in a constant manner, or of pneumatic PA/PS pumps that allow you to save up to 40% of compressed air and of AVG energy-saving vacuum generators.

Flipping through the catalogue is really hard not to come across products that do not pay attention to sustainability.

We invite you to do so and to contact Vuototecnica designers to find the right solution for you!
